Re: 270 wsm for long range hunting in nz

when are the Berger's going to be available? I have a 270 WSM HS in a Single shot handgun and will be using it for deer/antelope here in the states. the berger may be just the ticket for long range use out of this gun.

Re: 270 wsm for long range hunting in nz

Back home in Missouri we used the 270 WSM for long range white-tail hunting out to and just past 800 yards. Some used rifles just like yours and some used heavy barreled Savages and Winchesters. Some liked the heavy VLD and Accubond bullets, while some favored a light 100 grain Hornady. Its all just your preference and depends on your practice. I personally don't prefer the light bullets, but I watched a man shoot a doe at 857 with a 270 WSM pushing 90 grain Hollow Points. I don't prefer thm but he practiced with them alot.

Good Luck

Way to resurrect an old thread, you may not get much response over 3yrs old. By the way not all bullet makers publish BC's, Wildcat is one but you will find some threads with the 169.5 Wildcat at around .740 BC.
Welcome by the way.
